Intelligent Remote Sensor Monitoring for PLCs & Automation Systems

4B’s IE-Node is the future of hazard monitoring. Utilizing industrial Ethernet and cloud connectivity to share real-time sensor data, alongside historical analytics, with your PLC of choice — the IE-Node is truly intelligent. Sample code for a variety of PLC brands is available to help you connect your entire system and keep every component in constant communication for unprecedented hazard protection. The IE-NODE operates by reading its sensor inputs and sending processed data when requested by another system (e.g. PLC). The units are equipped with an RJ45 Ethernet socket and supports PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP/IP protocols for easy integration with Siemens, Allen-Bradley Rockwell, Modicon and other PLC’s or automation devices.

When it comes to monitoring bucket elevators and conveyors, 4B’s experience and product range is second to none. With an extensive range of ATEX / IECEx / CSA approved hazard monitoring systems, misalignment switches and bearing temperature monitors and level controls, 4B can offer anything from a replacement sensor to a fully integrated hazard monitoring system, which can be operated either as a stand-alone system or connected to your PLC.

4B can provide scalable solutions starting with correctly chosen equipment and systems that can be expanded at a later date to encompass other machines in the plant.


Founded in 1971 as a subsidiary of The Braime Group, 4B Braime Components has been an industry leader in developing high quality, innovative, and dependable material handling components for the agricultural and industrial sectors.
